The Black Panther movie did pretty well for Marvel, racking up at the time, the biggest domestic haul of the company’s movies. Although Black Panther did not get the best picture award at the Academy Awards, being nominated did give the studio some cred. So it is not surprising that a sequel is in the works (the word that director Ryan Coogler is already signed up is also a clue).
Well you can lay your doubts aside as today Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige and director Ryan Coogler confirmed that a sequel to Black Panther is in the works at Disney‘s D23 Expo. For now they are calling it “Black Panther II” but Coogler says it is too early for an official title. The film is due out May 6, 2022.
